PEAK Centre hockey training programs have been developed to ensure that players at all levels develop the skills and conditioning required to play hockey at its highest level.
Peak Centre Academy
Peak Centre has an elite School for Young Athletes with a focus on Hockey.
The Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadians, Toronto Maples Leafs, and New Jersey Devils are just a few of the teams with whom Peak has worked to maximize players’ performances. Our hockey training programs are for players at all levels and abilities and focus on strength, conditioning, skill, and nutritional strategies for building winning players and teams.
All on-ice hockey programs are designed and coordinated by Pat Malloy – former Skating and Skills coach for the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres

“Having trained with Peak Centre for 10 years, I really learned how to train like a professional. Their knowledgeable staff and scientific approach to training helped me take my game to the next level.” Grant Clitsome NHL Defenceman Winnipeg Jets
“My work with Pat Malloy on the ice was awesome. I noticed a huge difference in my edge work out of turns and leg power allowing me to get to areas on the ice with quickness and confidence. Pat’s constant change in stimulus and dynamic approach to teaching me puck skills and skating is the best in the business!” Ryan Spooner – Boston Bruins
“Working with Pat Malloy at Peak Centre has been extremely helpful to me as a skater. I feel faster, smoother and more explosive on the ice. Truly a great learning experience with a great coach who knows what he is talking about. Thanks for all the help and see you next summer.!” Tyler Toffoli – Los Angeles Kings
